    I noticed some changes in the app, most of which are towards the positive side. Has anyone found that "right-click" no longer holds the option of highlighting with colors? This creates some inconvenience for me since mine is without touch bar...

    Can we change it back?

    I cannot open multiple PDFs in one single Preview window anymore. Annoys the hell out of me. I need that function many times a day.

    Does old Preview run under HS, or is it blocked?

    I haven't tried that. Any idea how to get the Preview App from Sierra?

    Copied Preview.app 9.0 from another Mac running Sierra and it does run.

    I am encountering so many issues with the new version of Preview that I am not even sure where to start from. Did they let a group of interns just have fun with it or what ?

    Annotations in PDF files are crippled (again!) and buggy. Simple operations (like highlight text and add note) require more mouse pointing and clicking steps. Results are worse, with boxes now hiding the text (no more transparency of the highlight). And best of all: notes seem to go away when I close and open the document again! What a mess...
